Traditional Latin Masses in the Archdiocese of Toronto

The late Very Reverend Jonathan Robinson, C.O. offers the Holy Mass
at the Toronto Oratory Church of the Holy Family
There has been no published announcement from the Archdiocese of Toronto in reaction to the repugnant motu proprio of Pope Francis against the Holy Mass in its traditional form. There is no need. The current status quo applies. "Qui tacet consentit"  - silence gives consent! There will be no changes and for this, we can thank Thomas Cardinal Collins for his pastoral care and the announcements made last Sunday at all Masses that there will be "no changes." 

What we must do, as faithful in Christ, is to not despair and not abandon Our Mother, the Church at this time of Her suffering from abuse and a hostile takeover by malefactors. 

In Toronto and elsewhere, go to the Traditional Latin Mass. Go today and always. If you have never been, go anyway. Don't worry about not understanding or knowing what to do. Just go.

The abrogation of Summorum Pontificum

It is with deep regret that all of us learned of the rumoured and now fulfilled action by Francis, Bishop of Rome as he abrogates that which cannot be abrogated. At this time, we must remember that God is in charge. The motu proprio is a seriously flawed document. It is, as most which has come since the Second Vatican Council, poorly written and ambiguous. If he were not the alleged "supreme lawgiver" it would be an illegal document for its deficiencies. It is cruel, hurtful, vindictive and spiteful document and bears no sign of the Grace of the Holy Spirit. 

Our advice is to "Carry on." 

We will not submit to evil.

Attend Sunday or daily Mass at the following: 

St. Vincent de Paul at 9:30 A.M.
Holy Family at 11:00 A.M.
St. Patrick's Schomberg at 11:00 A.M.
St. Lawrence the Martyr at 1:00 P.M.
If so inclined.
The Society of St. Pius X
Church of the Transfiguration at 8:00 A.M. and 10:00 A.M.
Cathedral of the Transfiguration in Markham at 5:00 P.M. NO PRE-REGISTRATION!

A priest friend has provided a letter which you may wish to write with any modifications you wish. 

His Holiness, Pope Francis                                                                                      

Apostolic Palace

00120 Vatican City


Your Holiness, 

I am writing this letter to express my dismay and consternation of soul at the promulgation of the Motu Proprio Traditionis custodes which restricts the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass according to the Missale Romanum (editio typica, 1962) in use prior to the promulgation of the Novus Ordo Missae in 1970

Since the promulgation of the Motu Proprio of Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI in 2005, I have been privileged to attend the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on a regular basis/ somewhat regular basis at …. Parish in…. Ontario.  I would like Your Holiness to know that I have derived immense spiritual benefits from the celebration of this Mass and the instruction I have received during it. My participation has been conscious, active and fruitful. As a result, my commitment to our faith has deepened. Our community has grown in fervour and charity and I have come to know, to understand and to love our faith more deeply. My commitment to Christian life spiritually and in active charity has intensified because of the spiritual nourishment I have received. 

I am asking Your Holiness to consider the spiritual needs of your children. We are sons and daughters of the Church who desire the greater glory of God, the salvation of our own soul and the salvation of all people. The charity of Christ Our Saviour which excludes no one, has urged me to write this letter; and it is my hope that Your Holiness will rescind your Motu Proprio bearing in mind what your venerable predecessor Pope Benedict XVI observed in the letter accompanying Summorum pontificum: what earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful. 

I have the honour to profess myself with the most profound respect, a faithful son/daughter of Holy Mother Church and Your Holiness’ humble servant,
